Thousands of GP Practices across England are to receive a cash windfall under an agreement to resolve underpayments in dispensing and personally administered funds in 2010/11 and 2011/12, with many practices receiving more than £10,000.
The £10m one-off payment to GP Practices was agreed by the General Practitioners Committee and Department of Health, and will be paid accordingly to the proportion of dispensing and personally administered fees earned by each practice in 2010/11.
Personally administered fees include those charges for immunisations, long-term contraceptive devices and sutures, and the vast majority of non-dispensing practices are also due a rebate. A rebate due of less than £2.50 will not be paid.
Who will receive the payments?
Over £10,000 268 practices
Up to £10,000 832 practices
Up to £1,000 7,085 practices
Nil 49 practices
A letter from Richard Armstrong, head of primary medical care at the Department of Health, stated that PCTs would be allocated the money and payments should be made as soon as possible this financial year. His letter also stated that the payments were in recognition that dispensing fees were not increased in 2011.
